Let's all jump on the TTT-hate bandwagon! LOLOLOLOLOL trollalalalala
TTT is a flop. All flop albums decline less than 50% in the second week worldwide, & all flop albums sell 288K in their second week. All flop albums sell 504K first week worldwide.
Let's ignore those floppy global numbers, & get into even more flopiness locally. Naturally, the US is the only music market that matters (let us not consider that only a fraction of the album's sales come from the US!), & TTT could not even sell 300K in two weeks. Let's continue to compare TTT's first two US weeks to Loud's first two US weeks. One album had its second week during Black Friday, while the other album had its second-week post-Black Friday, but let us compare the second week declines anyway.
There's something else that needs to be said - let us judge the album's performance in its first two weeks of sales. The other 094qtu94u89t4jgtf09iq098jkf'][p-g weeks don't matter. If Rihanna can't be a frontloaded seller, than she simply can't be a seller at all.
Obviously, this is satire. You all continue to sound ridiculous. The album is selling just fine, even great.
Most Influential Music Artist of 2013: This year was all about Justin Timberlake, hands down. He scored the biggest sales week of 2013, selling nearly 1 million copies. He also landed a second No. 1 album and could be seen or heard just about anywhere throughout the year. Having the top seller of the year and not following the EDM trend was a statement that true star power can lead the business creatively into the future. Too many times we've seen stars come back with cookie-cutter records that didn't challenge the fans or industry to be open to something new. He made a proper double album and brought R&B back to the mainstream. So to all of the other stars making comeback LPs in 2014, they should feel liberated to make their best artistic expression. Justin Timberlake is a complete artist. He is a triple-threat in an age where that is almost an extinct breed. We all witnessed his profound and diverse impact. 2013 showed everyone what a creative genius he's been all along. óBillboard
